There are many factors to consider if you’re seeking a paid Toronto Internship or an internship somewhere further afield, but one thing you must get right is the cover letter. As most jobs are applied for via websites and certainly most internships require a cover letter, taking a few steps to make sure you make the right first impression is key. Many people attach their cover letter to the main email, this inadvertently makes it less likely to be read. Copy and paste into the body instead.
Being clear and succinct and only including information which is relevant to the position will also make your application stand out. In the tough competition for summer internships, make sure to stand out from the pack by telling them exactly why you are the person for the job and spicing up your closing paragraph.
